Active bass> passive DI
passive bass>active DI
Is usually what most will recommend.
I like my Sans Amp BDDI as it can be straight thru un-effected with it off and with it on using the blend and tone controls gives a variety of tone options.
The option of effected and Un-effected 1/4 outputs to an amp is nice too.
